Papi’s Tacos: 39 Seah Street
For our foodies who enjoy Mexican food, look no further! Heritage Collection on Seah’s friendly neighbour, Papi’s Tacos, can take you on a trip to Mexico in no time.
The taqueria has a cosy dining setting, with bar-top tables and retro Mexican film posters on lining the wall welcoming you as you step in. You will also be greeted by the friendly staff with their warm Mexican hospitality.
Papi’s Tacos has a wide variety of tacos and other Mexican dishes for you to choose from! At Papi’s, you’ll find a good range of tacos – from Tacos de Chorizo to Impossible Tacos. Yes, they have an option for our vegan friends too! The tacos come in sets of 2 or 3 and they are bite-sized portion served on corn tortillas. The succulent and juicy meat are very well complemented by the flavourful salsa. At Papi’s Tacos, they have the salsa verde, chipotle salsa and the guajillo salsa – and these are homemade. They also come in different spice levels, suitable for those who are not very good with spicy food.
Our team’s favourite would be Tacos de Pescado, which consists of grilled white dory, fresh cabbage and smoked chipotle aioli. It’s $13 for a set of 2 ($19 for 3). So be sure to try this one out! If you are fickle-minded on which taco to go for, we recommend getting Papi’s Platter. It serves 8 of Papi’s favourite tacos alongside the Holy Trinity (chips + tomato salsa + guacamole). The platter costs $55 and it’s good to share among your party of 4.
If you prefer to grab a quick bite for lunch, we recommend getting the chicken quesadilla ($14), served with homemade salsa and sour cream, or Burrito de Suadero ($18) if you’d like something more filling.
Of course, what’s a taqueria without its bebidas? Here at Papi’s, they offer a vast selection of tequila, mezcal and cervezas. Go ahead and ask the friendly staff for their recommendations and they will be more than happy to share with you some of their favourites. Papi’s also serve a good variety of non-alcoholic beverages.
Be sure to include Papi’s Tacos in your itinerary with us. There’s no excuse to skip this tacos joint as it is literally next door to Heritage Collection on Seah. The only regret is to not stop by and enjoy those mouth-watering tacos. When you’re there, remember to tag us your experience!
